14 Apr Story Time • April 14
Happy Tuesday morning! Since this morning is a bit cold and chilly, why not stay in your PJ’s for a Pajama Story Time from home!
Grab your stuffed animals, blankets and pillows, and enjoy a cozy story time with Ms. Megan as she reads about her favorite zoo animal: giraffes! Don’t forget to snap a photo of you and/or your child when you listen to a story time, or song, movement, or craft activity each week and post it online with our handle @SCPLibraryKY, along with the hashtag #SCPLfromhome.
Since giraffes are animals kids see at the zoo, listen to both of these songs that include movement activities for each animal the kids see in the videos. Kids will be dancing and moving like the animals do at the zoo!
